Welcome to Tokoroa Kart Club

NEXT EVENT

Sunday 30th July 2017....Fun day INCLUDING a visit from the Vintage Karts of New Zealand! Be there to catch these great karts in action. Will be a great fun winter club day

AGM changes:
Please note the changes that have come about as a result of our Annual General Meeting that was held on Sunday 18th June.

*** You need to be a member of Tokoroa Kart Club Inc in order to practice on the track. This aligns our club with many other clubs in NZ, and also further strenthens our Health and Safety policy in that we can keep tabs on who is using the track and when.
*** New annual club membership fee structure - $50 Junior member, $60 Senior member, $70 Family membership [all residing at the same address]
*** New key policy - $50 per annum for a key for the year or $20 per practice session
*** Confirmed race fees - $40 flat fee for all racers, discounted to $35 for extra family members [residing at the same address].



CONCRETE! There are lots of concrete pit sites available to use on club days....you are more than welcome to use them just ask one of us committee members who are always there early on a club day...you dont have to park way down the end on the grass, c'mon up, there is plenty of space!

We will try and advise you on facebook what concrete pit sites are available before the day.
ATTENTION ALL YOU BUDDING KARTERS OUT THERE WITH KARTSPORT NZ PRACTICE LICENSES...

You are very welcome to come along to our Club Day this Sunday 2nd of April. Catch the action, see the format, learn some skills....and....DEFINITELY BRING YOUR KART.

We will open the track over the lunch break and after racing so you can practice what you have been watching. Also, a lot of racing members will be there and will be only too happy to offer technical and racing advice.

If demand is there we can open the track for you at other times during the day if you wish...we are flexible so please don't hesitate to ask for Terry Palmer or Marin Vucich or Russell & Gaye Hoskins or Graeme Lambert or the chick on the gate Sheryl McIntosh in the first instance. We all hang on the concrete opposite the entrance to the grid area.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

CLUB INFO:

Click here for an Excel kart set-up sheet where you can record all your data for each meeting - a great resource to look back at see from past events what works and what doesnt. You can print the second page on the back of the first page so you can record lap times, rpm, temp etc for each race and lap so you see all the data for a meeting on one page. There is also a page to record your base set-ups. Best to go 'save as' when the prompt comes up, save it, then open it in Excel.

The draw for the naming rights for the track for one year was drawn in Nov 2014 and congratulations to Holsters Tradezone Tokoroa - it is now the Holsters Tradezone Raceway until next Anniversay Meeting in Nov 2015.

Lap records (as recorded by the AMB lapscoring system) are here.

Dont forget our new Kartsport Tokoroa sticker draw. With your membership you get 1 sticker. You can purchase extra stickers for $2.50. Every sticker displayed on your kart puts you into the draw to win your next meeting free!
